NC State hires receivers coach

NC State has hired Troy Walters as its wide receivers coach, the school announced on Wednesday.

Walters, who spent the past two seasons coaching the receivers at Texas A&M, won the 1999 Biletnikoff Trophy, given to the nation’s top collegiate wide receiver.

“We are excited that Troy has agreed to be a part of our staff,” coach Tom O’Brien said in a prepared statement. “He has outstanding experience as a player on the collegiate and professional levels and as a coach. He will be a great mentor and leader for our young wide receiver corps.”

Before his two-year stint in College Station, Walters spent 2009 as the offensive coordinator, quarterbacks and wide receiver coach at Indiana State.

“I’m excited to be a part of the Wolfpack family,” said Walters. “NC State has a great staff, great players and great fans and I like the direction that Coach O’Brien has the program headed. I’m looking forward to being a part of something very special here.”
